Life Lessons from This Weekend

1)  When your fiance is crab walking through your attic, don't think to yourself, "If he falls through the ceiling, I'm going to kill him."  When he does indeed fall through the ceiling, you feel like an asshole with evil magical powers.

2)  When crawling around in your attic, don't decide to stand up and tug on a wire as hard as you can so when it doesn't give, you fall through the ceiling of your house ass first.

3)  When you do fall through the ceiling of your house, make sure your extremely calm brother is there with you so he can walk into the room where you and your fiance are repeatedly uttering, "Oh my god, oh my god", look at the damage, shrug, and say, "It's just drywall."

4)  Being friends with a local contractor is really really handy.

5)  Spray insulation does not feel great in your lungs, wear a mask.

6)  Getting through a day where one of you causes hundreds of dollars of damage to your home and being able to wake up the next day, laugh about i,t and support each other is the sign of a relationship that is going to work.

7)  If you have a project that requires you to crawl around in your attic for hours...maybe you should just HIRE someone.


  1. admit it...sometimes we ARE evil assholes with magical powers;)

  2. the wonder of relationships is that they can be as fragile as your ceiling or as strong as the beams that hold it up....

    you two are solid wood...congrats


  3. I'm glad you guys can laugh about it now! :-) See you Saturday!!! xoxoxo
